Has the institution adopted a framework for community stakeholder engagement in governance, strategy and operations?:

A brief description of the policies and procedures that ensure community stakeholder engagement is applied systematically and regularly across the institution’s activities:

Project 50 Forward is an example of a community stakeholder engagement initiative that is applied systemically and regularly across many of Stony Brook University's operations and activities. Project 50 has and will continue to help enhance the University's fundamental teaching, research and service missions while building a platform to support the future growth of the University. It will also strengthen Stony Brook’s role in the economic renewal of New York State.

A brief description of how the institution identifies and engages community stakeholders, including any vulnerable or underrepresented groups:

With input from a 16-member Steering Committee, Project 50 Forward focuses on every facet of University operations – streamlining procedures, reining in costs, creating new revenue streams, and taking advantage of every opportunity to strengthen our faculty and support our students by providing them with the resources they need to excel. The result will be a more efficient, more effective Stony Brook University.

A brief description of successful community stakeholder engagement outcomes from the previous three years:

Operational Excellence seeks ways to optimize support for students, faculty, and staff to advance the educational and research mission of the University. With the assistance of an experienced management consultant and using information gathered from an open-ended invitation to the campus community to provide feedback, recommendations will be made based on a comprehensive review and analysis of campus operations and administrative structure.

Academic Greatness will be achieved through the implementation of a comprehensive Strategic Plan that is being developed, with input from many sources within the academic community including faculty and University leadership. It includes a significant review of the academic structure, systems and programs to identify areas where efficiency may be implemented. At its core, is the goal to provide an academic structure that is responsive, accountable and committed to our students; providing them with the most effective tools possible so they can reach their educational and research goals, in a timely manner.

Building for the Future will be advanced through the development of the Facilities Master Plan (FMP). The FMP is a collaborative effort with assistance from a consulting team that includes Cooper, Robertson & Partners and architect Scott Blackwell Page and an advisory committee that includes representation from the State University Construction Fund, university department leadership and subcommittees representing areas within the university community. This advisory committee is charged with the review, analysis, and formulation of a best-use model for new and existing buildings and infrastructure, for all Stony Brook University campuses including Main Campus, Medical Center, Research and Development Park, Manhattan and Southampton.
